The Ritz is well the Ritz. They really take care of you and the breakfast is to die for. They have an extensive pillow menu for the people who are very particular. The staff is from all over the world and they are well trained. The pool is outdoor but heated so the cool breeze from the canal was soon overcome by diving in the pool. The one thing they can improve upon is the local middle eastern food. Surprisingly the middle eastern fare is not as good as it could be. For people who like spicy food well you are out of luck as the food is fairly bland catering to Europeans. Just outside the main gate is the famous Mosque which is a must see. If you wish to swim in the private canal and experience the beach the golf buggy will drive you there. Overall great for a get away.
